There is a fascinating narrative about Rapunzel. But in order for you to get to it, you must go seeking the various names from which Rapunzel is derivative. What you know about much of this persona from the story legends is nearly true for example she had long hair. But it was coarse black and locked which, in the Old World, were called tresses. She had many of them. She is not the weak, damsel in distress as articulated by the popular, modern version we have come to know. She is strong and often times warrior-like helping defend her city. Obviously we know that Rapunzel was indeed a beautiful Black Woman. So beautiful that one 19th Century writer describes her as, "The most beautiful and beloved of all the Goddesses." (Hélène Adeline Guerber in Myths of Northern Lands). In order to know more of this great Black Woman, one must come to know her by her addtional names she's associated with. We therefore look to her as Freyja, the Scandinavian Queen worshipped by the Germans. As this Queen, she has the extended beautiful locks and her beauty is stunning like that to our lovely Venus. We also know more about Queen Freyja, or Rapunzel, in that when she cries it is liquid gold. She also wears a brisingamen which is a magical necklace. (Do you notice the last four letters in that word?) This is a very interesting Queen even more so when you trace her connection with Kemet.
